Great weekend for YOUTH SAILING!!

Any of you who did not come by Seafarer's Park this weekend really missed a great opportunity.  To see 150+ high school kids from Portland, Oregon to Bellingham...33 teams hotly competing for the NWISA (NorthWest InterscholasticSailing Assoc) ISLANDS CUP.   It was wonderful with Saturday winds often 20+ with the associated carnage of capsized and 'turtled' FJ dingies, and then near perfect 7 to 11 knot breeze for Sunday.  Sixteen races were run, with Bainbridge on top, followed by Lincoln of Portland and Woodinville third.   KUDOS TO THE OVER 30 AYC MEMBERS WHO VOLUNTEERED FOR ON THE WATER AND ASHORE HELP!!!!!!!   It was a spectacular event for all and there'll be more to come!!!
